Forum: GratefulDead Subject: TDIH - New Haven 1983

My first two Dead shows were this weekend in New Haven, thirty years ago. I can still remember coming off the I-95 exit ramp on the 23rd and being absolutely stunned by the ticketless masses gathered outside.

These are some photos I took on the 22nd. I recently scanned the original negatives and cleaned them up a bit. Not the greatest photos in the world, but might be of interest to some.

My first show 4/23/83. It was my 17th birthday. I went with three friends. We were all dressed in clown suits. We lost each other during the show, and in the parking lot after I walked around and around asking folks if they had seen any other clowns that night. Not surprising, many had.

pic 22 is pretty good, not a bad series of pics at stage backdrop or anything...
